Summer Vacation

May 28, 2013

If they are not already off for the summer, most students will be in the next few days. Today, for the older ones, that means a summer job interrupted by many workouts for those playing sports. For the younger ones, it probably means day care or summer camps or babysitters. In the olden days, it meant a summer with mom if you were younger with a lot of make-believe fun. For a lot of us older kids, it meant working on the farm. Today the family farm is gone, and in many instances the mother has a job. It is a shame that those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are not as lazy as they used to be. When I was in high school, I played Legion baseball and worked on our family farm. Since my dad had a business as well as the farm, I split my time doing chores at both of the enterprises. If there are any three-sport students out there they will not have time to work, because their summer will be filled with games and/or contests. I thoroughly enjoyed those years, because they were care free and a lot of fun. Even though my work was hard, I was young and handled it without much trouble. The evenings were filled with ball games and other fun summer activities. The one thing I am really glad I didn’t have to fight was the temptation of trying drugs. Any place a kid goes today, I am sure the presence of drugs is not far away. Some might call this summer fun, but I call it a temptation that wears our kids down and even some of the good ones fall victim to its lure. It sure would be nice to know the biggest problem our kids would face this summer is sunburn or poison ivy!
